OOPS, I am too late! I am already handicapped for these reasons and preventions were not part of my doctors plans.

The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;

Oh, I can confirm that high stress levels AND how you handle them can effect your health. Now that I don't have the daily stress of running a business, I'm trying to regain my health!

Something interesting - my husband has a very high-stress-level job and his health has been a challenge for the last several years. He has been on high BP meds for probably about 6 years or so. Recently while visiting Asia, he pulled his back muscle and a friend took him for a Chinese Cupping Massage. It drew soooo many toxins out of his system it was incredible. His back was immediately so much better, but he had some side effects that were similar to flu symptoms. After a few days though, he felt soooo much better and lost 10 pounds in about 1 1/2 weeks. He also lost his desire to drink alcohol. Further, I don't know if this is for sure a benefit yet, but his blood pressure (even on days when he forgets to take his meds) is a lot lower. At first he said he would never go back for a follow-up treatment (normal recommendation is 4), but now I think he's reconsidering! I plan to have this done as well on our next trip in a few weeks. I will let you know what happens!

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

I hope you have things under control more now! I too was in that same boat and I paid dearly I hope to never have to do that again.

I so agree with this. I spent many years of my life under huge amounts of stress & I paid for it with my health. Over the last few years I have been able to reduce the amount of stress & my health has slowly improved.
I don't know if I will ever be able to remove the stresses completely but I hope I will be able to cope with them better. emoticon

Listen Up Ladies—
Job Stress Can Lead to Heart Disease

Recent findings by Harvard researchers in the Women’s Health Study (which involved more than 17,000 female health professionals) indicate that women whose work is highly stressful are at a 40 percent increased risk of developing heart disease compared to their less-stressed colleagues. The study also showed that women who worry about job loss are more likely to have high blood pressure, unhealthy cholesterol levels and be obese.

More studies back this up. A large study in Denmark found a higher risk for heart disease among women aged 51 and older who were under greater work pressure. Another study in Beijing found that women with job strain had increased thickness of the carotid artery—a sign of cardiovascular disease.

The effects of stress, and especially chronic stress, are far-reaching. The body is designed to respond to stress by increasing blood pressure, speeding heart rate, quickening breathing, and slowing digestion. Did you know that stress even alters the microbial balance in the digestive tract? Chronic stress has these same effects, but over a longer time period. The result? Chronic disease.

There are some aspects about work-related stress that cannot be changed. We all know that. How we handle the stress is another story. Stress-reducing therapies such as relaxation techniques, meditation, or yoga can be helpful. Regular exercise is another stress reducer, and is also good for the heart. Reducing stress outside of work can also help lessen the stress load.
